Special Issue "Studies on River Training"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 May 2020).
This Special Issue of Water will present and review the latest insights, innovations, and experiences in river training, focusing on four specific areas. The first area regards the functioning of innovative river training structures, such as permeable groynes, bottom vanes, surface screens, porcupines, and longitudinal training dams. The second area relates to the adverse effects of river training, often only becoming manifest and creating full awareness of their existence in the long term. This awareness of adverse effects is now leading to more adaptive approaches to stabilizing river courses, protecting riverbanks, improving navigability, and providing safety against flooding. The third focus area concerns the advanced theory and modeling of hydrodynamics and morphodynamics to predict effectiveness and to assess the impacts of river training. The fourth area is about case studies to evaluate the long-term performance and sustainability of river training projects implemented in the past. The Guest Editor welcomes papers on river training that address one or more of these focus areas. The ultimate goal is to produce a high-quality state-of-the-art for river scientists, as well as guidance for practicing river engineers.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Water is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
